Far too many young people in Manitoba are facing a crisis when it comes to substance abuse, addictions, and mental health issues.
But instead of investing in programs to help our youth, the Pallister government is eliminating supports. Five jobs have been cut from the Compass Residential Youth Program in Portage la Prairie – a unique Addictions Foundation of Manitoba program that helps youth aged 13-17 who are struggling with substance use disorders and mental health problems.
At this critical time, these young Manitobans need more support, not less. But cuts will affect the quality of the program, which could take away their chance for a successful outcome.
The MGEU has set up an online petition to raise awareness. Please
sign and share this petition to send a message to the Manitoba Government
and urge them to reverse these reckless cuts!
